High School Coach Kills 1, Injures Another In Suspected Robbery

DETROIT (WWJ) – An attempted robbery outside a west side Detroit high school has tragic consequences Friday night.

The incident happened around 7:30 p.m. as the girl’s basketball coach from Martin Luther King Jr. High School was walking two of his players to their cars.

Two teenagers allegedly approached the coach, and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach, who is also a reserve officer for the Detroit Police Department, then pulled out his gun and shot both of the suspected robbers.

One of the suspects was found dead a short distance from the scene. The other was taken to the hospital.

Reports say the suspect who was fatally shot was a former MLK student who had been expelled from the school.

The coach reportedly has a concealed pistol license and is fully cooperating with police.

An investigation is ongoing
